Taken from a scene from Bridgerton, this English countryside estate is nestled away in Cherry Hills Village. Sitting on nearly six acres, 8 Sunset Drive is a remarkably private oasis inside and out.
From the portico entrance held high with white columns to the open floor plan and vaulted ceilings, this home is a case study for the Georgian Revival style, says listing agent Josh Behr with LIV Sotheby's International Realty.
The story of this property goes back to the 1920s. While the history remains, modern touches are found throughout the more than 17,000-square-foot house.
“The home has had several renovations since 1920, yet all the owners have acted as stewards of the original aesthetic and craftsmanship by ensuring the updates and maintenance be upheld to the highest standard,” Josh says. “When walking through the home, there is a strong juxtaposition between the classic, authentic architecture and the modern feel of today.”
With a clean, modern aesthetic consistent with the finest homes of today, it’s clear that the current owners have thought meticulously about this property. Take the dining room for example. The elegant space is laced with a crown molding design on the ceiling and trim throughout. The crystal chandelier, French doors and large windows boasting natural light really tie the space together.
“The timeless architecture and elegant interiors make this a rare find and truly unique offering, placing this home and property amongst the finest in the country,” Josh says. “Its refined, classical aesthetic, clean lines and expert craftsmanship are stunningly complemented by extensive modern conveniences in the way of state-of-the-art appliances, luxury amenities and state-of-the-art technology featured throughout the home.”
Carrying on with the home’s theme, the updated kitchen boasts white cabinets with black accents and stone countertops, high-end appliances, and a substantial hood creating a kitchen enviable to the finest chefs. In addition to his and her offices and a variety of spaces to gather and entertain, this home features a guest quarter, seven bedrooms and 12 bathrooms.
The real treasure, though, are the grounds—a space of beauty and caliber rarely found. A fountain sits in the center of the stone terrace, which spans the width of the house, and two cascading staircases invite guests to the lawns surrounded by mature trees. In fact, this outdoor living space is Josh’s favorite aspect of 8 Sunset Drive.
“The grounds are irreplaceable and most certainly the most breathtaking element of the home,” he says. “The structure is beautiful and significant in its own right, and in fact, the connection between the interior spaces and sprawling yards and gardens evident in virtually every room in the house serves as a constant reminder of this incredible property.”
The vast acres also create a sanctuary, with exclusive on-site amenities like a tennis court, pool, play structure and several patios for all occasions.
Located in Cherry Hills Village, this property feels set apart from the everyday bustle of the city but still maintains quick, convenient access to Cherry Creek, downtown Denver and the Denver Tech Center. 8 Sunset Drive is currently listed for sale by Josh and the Behr Team for $12.9 million.
